"The State Department said the evacuees will be asked to pay "the going commercial rate for transport out" - about $150, although the amount hasn't been decided yet. If they can't pay up, Uncle Sam wants an IOU. "We are moving as quickly as we can. It's a complex operation that involves an extraordinary level of effort," said Adm. Patrick Walsh."
It appalling that the very same government we pay to protect and serve us charges a fee to save American lives in Lebanon.
Incredibly and beyond reasoning, there are still Americans calling the Bush Administration a "Christian, God fearing" entity. Ha!
Incidentally, to be a "Christian" means to be a follower of the teachings of Jesus Christ. Correct me if I am wrong, but I simply don't recall written anywhere in the Bible where Jesus Christ charged for salvation. However, I do know that it says that "the love of money is the root of evil".
I guess the "God fearing" administration were absent the day that lesson was taught in Sunday School... if they ever went at all?
